Tribe War, also known as Waifu Wars, Isekai Wars, or Western Isekai, is a fandom war between fans of various Western animated shows with Isekai themes, originating on the 4Chan /co/ board in July of 2019.


On July 21, 2019, an anonymous 4Chan user posted a /co/ board thread, titled "Soon"[1], depicting character, Tulip Olsen from the (at the time) upcoming Cartoon Network animated series, Infinity Train, putting Amphibia main character, Anne Boonchuy in a trash bin. This is considered to be one of the first instances of a fandom war between the two shows.

On July 22, 2019, an anonymous user posted a /co/ board thread, titled "I'm here to divide up /co/. Choose one and only one"[2], with a thumbnail of the animated main characters, Luz, Anne, and Tulip from the animated shows, The Owl House, Amphibia, and Infinity Train. The post accumulated over 500 replies, as well as several OCs related to the Tribe War.

As the fandom war attracted more attention, other users began joining in, creating their own threads bashing the other show. One anonymous user posted a thread titled "ANNE TRIBE"[3], which may have been where the catchphrase "Tribe War" originated from. Shortly after the first thread was posted, another user posted a thread titled "TULIP TRIBE"[4] in response. In the midst of the chaos, one Owl House fan posted a thread humorously titled, "g-guys?"[5] with an image of Luz crying.

Over the course of the following week, /co/ experienced heavy amounts of fandom wars from fans of various shows, mainly Amphibia and Infinity Train. Other shows included The Owl House, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Steven Universe, Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure, DC Super Hero Girls, Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, Hilda, 12Forever, and more recently, Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts.

By late 2019, Tribe War had become a widely known phase on the /co/ board.
